Paul was born and raised in the Midwest and moved to New Jersey 14 years ago. His show is titled Passions and Appetites because he believes we are all given different appetites. Things we like, subjects we are moved by. By tapping into these and experiencing them and the different flavors, we are shaped into who we are. When we are flavored by these, we then open ourselves to using these to pursue our passions. He paints his appetites, what he finds beautiful and tasteful to his palette, many colors, many flavors, and many tastes.
He uses this talent to encourage others to find what their appetites are. He is also a poet with a way of painting the verbal picture journey. He resides in Trenton, N.J. where he is heavily involved with the non-profit agency Men for H.O.P.E. A ¼ of all profits of sales will go to this organization. The artistnotes: “Our appetites are what God gives us. Our Passions are what we give back to God.”
